Stunning Photos!!!    posted 11/1/2012 (updated 11/1/2012)

I loved, loved, loved working with Kristin. From our very first meeting, I knew she was my photographer. I had met with 6 other photographers and didn’t get the feeling that they were right for the job. When Kristin and I met, she was warm, fun, and I knew she had the personality to take charge of my fairly large wedding party. ( 5 Bridesmaids and 5 groomsmen.) Why should you hire Kristin?

My husband and I got a sneak peak while on our honeymoon of the photos set to music. It was only 3 or 4 days after the wedding! I know some brides that are still waiting a few months later to see all of their photos.

She was also so quick to post more photos on face book so that all our friends and family could see our photos. Not only did she share photos on face book but within 2 weeks she gave me a link with password protection to see all of the photos. I usually don’t like many photos of myself but Kristin made me look beautiful every time!

After she posted photos on the website we got a CD copy of our photos of all of the images. This was maybe 3 or 4 weeks after the wedding. She’s so quick I tell you. What I liked about this is you not only got all the photos but she even included a folder called internet. Which the file size are smaller and it takes less time to upload to face book.

Kristin exceeded all my expectations and more and she even had time to send the photos to Style Me Pretty. Now that was exciting!

If you want awesome wedding photos that everyone will talk about, hire Kristin. She’s the best!

Even grooms love KLP.    posted 9/25/2012 (updated 8/28/2013)

I had to chime in on this review list because it seems like this has been mostly brides so far. As a groom, I have to shout Kristin's praises from the rooftop.

I was pretty nervous to have my pictures taken professionally- but from the minute we met Kristin at the engagement session, I knew that she was going to change my mind. We had so much fun getting to know her and learning how to work the camera :) By the time the wedding rolled around, Kristin felt like a friend and we were all so excited to have her be part of the big day.

Even after the wedding, we didn't want to stop working with Kristin. We did a Mr and Mrs photo shoot in a vineyard for us and captured some of the most stunning images I've ever seen.

Kristin is awesome. Grooms, if you're part of the decision making process, push for KLP. She's fun, approachable, hilarious, creative. You won't be disappointed.

We would pick her again and again and again...    posted 6/28/2012 (updated 9/12/2013)

My husband and I were very concerned about picking the right photographer, since neither of us are comfortable in front of the camera and having someone photograph your most intimate feelings and the most important day of your life can be very daunting! Add to it that we were planning our wedding from out of state and we had a situation headed for disaster. Enter Kristin. We had a single weekend to meet with and select our photographer, and after meeting with five individuals in all price ranges, were blown away by how comfortable Kristin made us. Our engagement session was only our second time ever meeting with her, and even though her weekends were booked by weddings, she set aside an afternoon to shoot our engagement pictures because we had to travel from out of state. She has the perfect mix between letting you be yourself and just capturing the moment and helping to direct when you’re a little unsure, to make sure the pictures are perfect. She loves crazy ideas, so if you consider any part of your story/wedding/relationship unique (and who doesn’t?!) Kristin is the photographer to capture it. The day of the wedding I forgot she was there, yet she managed to get every picture I wanted, every hug, tear, smile. I even had a newlywed couple comment to me on how lucky we were to have her as our photographer at the wedding before even seeing the pictures. I was blown away by the result and had the edited images so much faster than I ever would have expected. It is obvious that she loves what she does, and I would recommend her to EVERYONE whether you’re getting married in Chicago or Punta Cana! Mike and I are even considering finding a way to have her photograph a maternity and first year sessions when we start our family, even though it would involve flying to Chicago.

Eye of the Tiger    posted 7/14/2014

Kristin was a joy to work with! We are so glad we splurged for her! She has an incredible eye and a personality that keeps things fun and light. We loved the engagement session and were completely stress-free going into the wedding about pictures. She was very prompt and professional. We absolutely loved working with Kristin La Voie Photography! And the pictures prove our day was magic!

Breathtaking photos we are still obsessing over!    posted 6/4/2014

I cannot say enough about how amazing our experience with Kristin was!! She took our Engagement and Wedding photos and not only were the results mind blowing, she also made us feel comfortable and relaxed during our sessions. The night of the wedding, she was great about making sure we were on time but also capturing all the photos we wanted. She was also extremely flexible when the evening schedule changed. The wedding album is breathtaking and we were amazed at some of the moments she captured throughout the night. We're looking for excuses to use her amazing skills again :)

You will NOT be disappointed!!!    posted 6/3/2014

My husband and found Kristin online and were immediately impressed with her work. Then we met her in her adorable, charming studio and we were really impressed! Booking was very easy. She's got the whole system down from contracting to wedding worksheets. She makes everything so seamless and stress free! She is also VERY prompt and upfront when corresponding- something a bride can REALLY appreciate! We loved engagement photos, but the real artistry came at our wedding. You will never look better! She not only captured us to perfection, but our guests and venue as well! She is thoughtful, romantic, silly, and charming... all qualities reflected in her work. We are so happy we spent the money for these captured memories- they are absolutely incredible, as is Kristin.

INCREDIBLE is an understatement!    posted 9/27/2013

Being a professional wedding photographer myself I had the hardest time finding a wedding photographer, as Kristin was booked on my date. After searching high and low I decided to change my wedding date so that Kristin could shoot my wedding, that was the best decision I made! Being a photographer myself I had a vision in my head of what I wanted the photographs to look like and I seriously was blown away how beautiful the images turned out! They turned out better then I ever imagined! I'm SO thankful I decided to change my date to have Kristin be my photographer. She delivered amazing images after the wedding, that I am so happy to have forever! She helped the day flow wonderfully and had a great second shooter to help create more beautiful images. I hands down recommend her to anyway, she is worth every penny! Professional, talented, creative and amazing!

Engagement Session    posted 9/26/2013

I LOVE Kristin La Voie Photography. So far we have only had our engagement session but it turned out better than I could have asked for.

Beginning with our initial phone call to our many, many emails to our actual session Kristin has been constantly in contact with us. She is so genuinely interested in everything I've had to ask so far. Throughout our entire engagement session she had my fiance and I cracking up :). We had a blast shooting pictures all around Navy Pier and Olive Park I couldn't have asked for anything better.

Kristin just truly has a passion for photographing couples in love. I'm so happy we chose her for our engagement/wedding pictures. I cannot wait to until our wedding because I am 100% certain our pictures will turn out amazing :).

Amazing photographer    posted 9/25/2013

Kristin is absolutely amazing. One of the first things I did when we got engaged was to look at wedding photographers. Photography was one of the most important things to me and something I wanted to book very early on. After looking at tons of photographers websites, we decided to hire her over two years ago for our wedding and engagement photos. She did our engagement photos last year and they were amazing. We got lots of photos back and we loved the all. We received so many compliments on them! I knew we made the perfect choice for our photographer. We were just married on 9/21/13 and although we've only seen her Facebook sneak peek (which we adore) we are sure our photos will be as amazing as our engagement photos. Kristin was fabulous to work with and always helpful, she is a true pro! Kristin is the perfect choice for your wedding photographer. She is also super fast at getting photos up on Facebook and her blog and we love that we got to see our sneak peeks so soon!

Could Not Be Happier    posted 9/10/2013

Kristin is the second photographer we booked for our wedding this past August. The first one freaked out and basically canceled on us 3 weeks before the wedding when I expressed some concern about not liking some of the engagement photos. She said my expectations were too high and that what I was asking for was unrealistic.

By some miracle Kristin happened to be available for my date and did not seem at all concerned when I described what I was looking for. I booked her immediately and am so glad that I did! She was professional, fun to work with, and delivers AMAZING photos.

I don't know how else to describe the difference except to say that the photos I got with Kristin are what you see on pinterest and in magazines, the photos I got with the first photographer were just not. I would absolutely recommend her and can't wait to work with her in the future - she also does baby photos!

Rockstar of all photographers!!    posted 9/9/2013

Working with Kristin has been an amazing experience thus far!!! Her unique way of capturing special moments during our engagement photo session resulted with jaw dropping images. Kristin's pictures tell a story and her talent speaks for itself. She definitely takes pride in every single picture she takes and her reactions let you hear how much she loves her work! I am beyond excited to see her continue with our wedding day. :)

Perfection :-)    posted 9/6/2013 (updated 9/6/2013)

Kristin was the first vendor we booked for our wedding. I first saw Kristin's work through a friends engagement pictures and fell in love with what she can do. I was a little nervous when it came to picking a photographer because I HATE pictures of myself. I avoid Facebook posts, have never owned a camera and just do not feel comfortable smiling for pictures. She 100% put me at ease (my fiancee on the other hand seemed to LOVE the camera lol) Our engagement pictures were taken on a day when it was pouring ran and still look absolutely fantastic. We got married this past weekend and she made me feel so comfortable the entire time. She is so sweet and easy going. Her work is breath-taking.

During my planning process when I wasn't sure what I wanted for other areas of the wedding I looked through her pictures on Facebook for inspiration. She is also super responsive to any questions you might have and referred me to some other really good vendors too.

LOVE Kristin!!    posted 9/6/2013

Kristin is not only an amazing photographer but an awesome person as well. The most important part of my wedding was my choice in photographer so I was just a little picky in choosing the right person. However, I knew immediately after seeing Kristin's photographs and speaking with her that she was the one.

Our engagement photos were planned for a day in late April 2013 since I thought the weather would be cooperative. However, the weather that day was a mixture of snow/rain and overcast. I was mortified that my pictures would come out to be less than perfect. Boy was I wrong! The pictures from that day were nothing short of gorgeous. I had multiple people tell me that my engagement photos were the best photos they had ever seen. Even with horrible weather my photos look like they belong in a magazine.

I remember looking at reviews for photographers and seeing that Kristin La Voie had a perfect score on EVERY bridal site. I couldn’t believe this was possible but after working with Kristin I can safely say these reviews are all true. She puts her heart into every couple and makes you feel like you’re her only (or at least favorite) client. I have no doubt that my wedding photos with Kristin will be everything I could hope for. I believe Kristin is worth every penny for her skill, unique photos, and passion for what she does.

Amazing, Mind-Blowing Photography!    posted 8/31/2013 (updated 8/31/2013)

I don't even know how to start this review - 3,500 words is not enough to describe how amazing Kristin is!! We just got married in June 2013 in Paris, and were lucky enough to snag Kristin for our destination wedding. From the consultation, to the planning, to the day of the wedding and afterwards, we had nothing but the best experience with Kristin. She is kind, understanding, responsible, and, of course, brilliantly talented. Husband and I could not be more over-the-moon with our photos. Friends and family are constantly commenting that we should be in a bridal magazine - and it is all thanks to Kristin's talent! There are so many absolutely stunning photos that I don't even remember seeing her take - she has an eye for all things beautiful, and knows how to find the perfect light, how to frame a shot, and her enthusiasm and incredible energy made the entire day so much fun!!

I was nervous that we would miss important photographs, or that I would look horrible (although this fear was completely unfounded since I had seen Kristin's work before!), but the day of the wedding came and Kristin put me completely at ease. As a bride, you have so much to think about before the wedding, but on the day of the wedding it is so, so important to let everything go and just enjoy the day. I was able to do that thanks in large part to Kristin, who directed everyone without being intrusive. While I was getting ready, she was moving around furniture and making vignettes and taking photos, all without my even having to ask for anything, or feeling rushed or bothered.

We are so happy to have had Kristin as our wedding photographer, and even better to have had her capture our memories in Paris. After the wedding, we received a slideshow of our photos, and shortly after, a USB with all our gorgeous images. There is not one single image that I would not frame - she captured all the important moments, the big ones, the small ones, the ones I would not have even thought of but now am so glad they were captured! Most importantly, she captured our emotion and happiness.

Not all wedding photographers are created equal - and Kristin is far, far above the rest. Her dedication, her passion, and her awesome personality put her way, way, way above the rest. She is a pleasure to work with, and her talent will blow you away. An investment in Kristin La Voie photography will pay dividends each time you look at your photos and smile!

Kristin is simply the best    posted 8/28/2013 (updated 8/28/2013)

Kristin and her assistant shot our Aug wedding in Chicago . She is a true gem!! She deserves more than 5 stars.I saw her website some time ago and was so impressed with her skill. She just keeps getting better and better as the years pass.

She was able to get breathtaking shots and we only had about an hour for first look photos, group shots, and couples pictures because of some internal issues with timing, but she ran around with us in the hotel and grant park .She and her assistant worked every angle. We got our photo sneak peek only 3 days after our wedding!!!
Our photos are GORGEOUS, great lighting and very creative. Her specialty seems to be the outdoor nature look or using artificial lights to add a very dramatic or romantic look (as seen in the couture magazines) .

Kristin was a pleasure to work with, she made me and everyone feel relaxed and beautiful. My family and friends cant stop raving about her. She was very professional from the time we booked her to the very end of the night of our wedding day. She was by far my favorite vendor to work with. We are beyond pleased we chose her as our wedding photographer.

We didn't have enough time to take our engagement photos (toddler, and new business) Kristin was very understanding and suggested we take Mr & Mrs photos dressed in our wedding attire in the winter snow ( season we got in engaged ) . I can't wait for another amazing session with Kristin !!

destination wedding    posted 6/12/2013

I cannot express how much I loved Kristin LaVoie Photography, other than picking the groom she was the absolute best decision I made and I was so incredibly lucky to have found her and that she was available. I could go on for two days about how wonderful she is but her pictures really say it all. When your day is over in a blink of an eye, her beautiful pictures live on and capture the magic of the day.
Kristin was in constant communication with me and took the stress of planning a destination wedding away. She was willing to listen to all the shots I wanted but I really knew that I could trust her to do her thing and not to have to worry. She was so much fun to be around and handled so many obstacles including the crazy heat and rocking boat that our reception was on. She is so professional, thoughtful, sweet and fun but above all else she is CRAZY talented!! I feel truly in debt to her for the priceless gift she gave me and I can hang on my wall and look at every day!
Thank you so so much!!

Amazing photographer!    posted 10/31/2012

Kristin is the best photographer, really I'm not just saying that. She is so kind, funny, patient and prompt. She is super organized and you get the photos back sooooo quick! Our photos were perfect and we received so many compliments about how gorgeous they were. On top of being so creative and taking gorgeous photos Kristin also makes the experience of taking photos fun and comfortable and it felt like a special part of the day in and of itself. She captured the day so perfectly and it was truly a pleasure to work with her! Obviously we highly recommend KLP and don't have one negative thing to say. You will love KLP - we plan to hire Kristin in the future for all our special pictures/events. If you are on the fence look at her website - all her pics are amazing!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Kristin!!!    posted 10/30/2012 (updated 11/2/2012)

Pictures are a BIG thing with me. So in choosing our photographer, when I met with Kristin I knew she was the right person!! We absolutely love everything about Kristin! Not only is she a pure genius with her ideas of our engagement photos, but she was just as brilliant with our wedding photos!! Kristin is so sweet, professional, helpful, beyond creative, fun to work with and always responds quickly to those last minute questions. Kristin captured our wedding day perfectly, getting every single detail of the day. She captured moments that I didn't think could be caputured and she is truly the BEST wedding decision I could have made, besides saying I DO to my husband! :) Brides out there you NEED to have Kristin capture your day. You will not regret it!!! I can not wait to work with Kristin again in the future. BABIES YAY!!! We absolutely LOVE KLP!!!
